Engaged Learning Spotlight
ECM’s Engaged Learning Experiences continue to shine in K-8 classrooms across the Lowcountry.
In this ELE highlight, Cat Brantley of Sister Moon Studios worked with first graders at Howe Hall AIMS in Berkeley County to create batik representations of the phases of the moon. Each child created an original moon batik to take home. They also created an art installation at the school which doubles as a teaching tool and a beautiful work of art!
ECM is proud to announce that North Charleston High School recently launched an E-STEAM program called Inspire, Innovate, and Create Institute on February 21, 2023. It is an afterschool program that meets from 3:30 to 5:30 every Monday for nine weeks.
